At-will employment allows either party to end the employment relationship with or without cause. This is often misunderstood. While an employer can usually terminate an employee for good cause or no cause, they cannot wrongfully terminate an employee for reasons such as:
- Retaliation for an employee filing a sexual harassment or discrimination claim or otherwise opposing discrimination
- Discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, religion, or disability
- Other whistleblowing activity
- Termination for filing a workers compensation claim
If you believe your termination was caused by one of these factors, you owe it to yourself to pursue your rights to the fullest extent of the law. Employers need to be held accountable for their unethical and illegal actions.
